Does stuff just pile in? Now there's pro help nearby: California Closets is opening just over the Westport border. With over thirty years of experience, it installs more than 42,000 systems countrywide annually and has over 100 showrooms. With custom-designed and installed closets and shelving, it's clutter-control mastery. Review the types of systems at the 1,500-square-foot converted two-story showroom.

2. Steven Alan/West Elm

Fashion designer Steven Alan (100 Post Rd. E.) is collaborating with West Elm (37 Main St. ) to offer Steven Alan Stripes for West Elm - Beddings, vasesm rugs and furniture. Speaking of West Elm's roster of artists around the world, Alan noted in WSJ, "The result is a collection that celebrates centuries-old craft for today's home."

3. Indulge

Indulge offers gift-finding solace. Opened by Mississippi-native Mersene Norbom, the boutique at 24 Railroad Place, Westport, sells gift items and baskets hand-selected by the design-trained owner. From home decor pieces, like oversized candles, to children's accessories, the collection fits a multitude of occasions. Plus, it's fun to shop. The store has soul. Maybe it comes from Norbom's own story, a humble beginning followed by time in Asia. She now supports local artisans while also incorporating international flair.


4. Geiger's

No one prepares for spring like a pro landscaper. No wonder that Geiger's Garden Center recently established a second location in Sconset Square (first one at 1135 Post Rd. E., 203-227-3811). With nearly sixty years in the area, this business understands the home turf - what Westporters want for their landscape.

5. Bassett Furniture

The widely known furniture store Bassett recently moved into the corner location near Barnes & Noble. Hard to miss. It's now beautifully packed with Bassett's collections. In a welcoming gesture, it donated furniture to Project Return, a local home for girls in crisis.
